Broken: iTunes censorship

Oddly, song #2 is censored, but #3 is not. Heh.


Ass isn't usually censored.. heh but Hens & Cocks? definitly a case of automated censorship gone wrong.

I think the most amusing thing is that this is in a Classics for Children collection.

Usually the song name would be censored if its censored on the album name. Usually it just puts whatever the name of the song is. If its censored on the album, its censored on iTunes. Many rap songs I have in iTunes have the worst of names. In conclusion, something DEFINITELY went wrong when naming these songs.

Why would you name a song that anyway? Especially for children's ears

This song was probably written a long time ago. That word used to be another name for a rooster.

It wouldn't have to be that long ago -- the word is *still* in use for roosters and other male birds. There are other common uses of it too. By no means is this an archaism. The vulgar use of it is 'way down the list at To wit:

wtf do you mean why would somebody name a song that way????

classical music wasn't composed in the 20th century....what's just ppl were at least slightly intelligent at that time, unlike now
